French-Jewish Holocaust survivor found burned to death
The 85-year old Jewish Holocaust survivor had filed complaints against a Muslim neighbor who had threatened to burn her. Le Parisien newspaper reported that she was found dead Friday in her incinerated apartment on Avenue Philippe Auguste in the Paris 11th arrondissement. A French-Jewish security organization (BNVCA) said the victim of the atrocity – named as “Mireille K” – had been stabbed 11 times and five fires set in her apartment. A suspect is being questioned by the police. Last year, the French-Jewish community was shaken by the murder in Paris of 65-year-old pensioner Sarah Halimi. She was beaten in her apartment, also in the 11th arrondissement, by an Islamist assailant and thrown from a third-story window. Last month, a French court ruled that the case would be prosecuted as an anti-Semitic hate crime.

    No Legion d’Honneur for perpetrator, yet?
    But then, I heard there is no muezzin chanting on top of the Eiffel tower, and Marianne has no hijab!
